From the back cover:
Recapturing the Romance of the Road
Where the Old Roads go is a nostalgic look at the first federal highways in the Northeast - where they go, how they got there, and what remains of their past - as well of a practical guidebook to the gems along the way.

George Cantor followed each of the original federal highways from Maine to New York, capturing the natural beauty, the histoy, the people, and the romance of the road in his book. Here you can visit with him the Presidential Range and the Finger Lakes, revolutionary war heroes and traitors, writers and artists. Cantor reveals the treasures these roads hide from drivers who stick to the interstate.
